the prada always innovating quietly, I love the cool style and simple but sophisticated…
fashion blah blah
absolutely stunning. Love the colours, love the boatneck jumpers over the shirts, love the cargo shapes…love everything. Thanks Scott.
June 20, 2010 at 6:10 pm
great shoes !! like them ! =)
June 20, 2010 at 6:15 pm
The bottom picture with that amazing sweater just inspired me on a whole new level!
June 20, 2010 at 6:19 pm
i'm feeling this. especially the boatneck sweater. this, i have to say, is a smart collection.

colors seem to be THE trend for men this season. As exemplified by these shots, and the Jil Sanders show.

Those denim shorts are absolutely hideous and terribly cool at the same time
The first style is fabulous except for the shoes.
I can't say that I like the rest. Mostly because I don't like wide mens shorts and especially not with those legs. Those boys certainly don' have the legs to wear this kind of shorts.
But I agree with you on the more wearable clothes.
Great pictures, thanks for sharing.
great colors, clean aesthetic, especially keen on the shoes, it all works beautifully
June 20, 2010 at 6:22 pm
Very promising. Makes me all the more excited about the women's collection.
June 20, 2010 at 6:31 pm
The clothes certainly do look interesting- the blazer is eye-catching but the men on the runway are looking a tad underweight, no?

love the simplicity and tailoring of the first lookxo
June 20, 2010 at 7:06 pm
Those shorts are going to make anybody's legs, even the strongest of rugby players, looks like chicken legs… Other than that aesthetic issue they are cool.
June 20, 2010 at 7:12 pm
The shoes are amazing.
June 20, 2010 at 7:42 pm
i really like the bottom picture!!
June 20, 2010 at 7:50 pm
I hate it, especially the over-the-collar sweaters and the ample shorts. Sorry.
June 20, 2010 at 7:54 pm
I'm so happy to see that men's fashion is so experimental for this season. This season is breaking free from neutral slacks and jackets and embracing some new colors and shapes! I'd love to see how those shorts would be worn on the street.
June 20, 2010 at 8:20 pm
top half of the models look nice–proportion, etc. however, not so much on the skorts and clunky shoes.
June 20, 2010 at 8:50 pm
I really love your site so informative and i added it already on my blog can add me here please…
June 20, 2010 at 8:51 pm
I have been with you from the start, proudly, and finally want to say that you should change your title from sartorialist to fashionalist. The difference does not matter to some, but i know you know the distinction. Sorry, it's how i feel.
June 20, 2010 at 8:56 pm
Yes, I agree. I think the sweaters, suits and jackets look amazing, but ehh.. not quite sure about the shorts and shoes.http://www.bubblistyle.blogspot.com
June 20, 2010 at 9:18 pm
That denim skort or is it Raver pants/Jenko Jeans cut offs is ridiculous -in a really bad way.
June 20, 2010 at 9:25 pm
I liked the collection, but I'm not digging the GIANT baggy shorts with raw edges.

Shorts = atrocity.

Tangent loves that there is some color in this years mens fashion week!
Love the shoes too.
June 20, 2010 at 10:04 pm
It was the best colection season hands down
Beats out D&G and CK
As I was going through the photos I loved it
June 20, 2010 at 10:08 pm
A little scared by those denim shorts…otherwise pretty cool. Love the fit of that first set of trousers!
June 20, 2010 at 11:26 pm
Very sharp! And I'm loving those wide-legged shorts!
June 20, 2010 at 11:32 pm
Prada; Top half is excellent but the wide leg shorts? … totalmente assurdi e no per me grazie!Bottega Veneta; Rich colour pallet and alluring details enough to please both sides of the fence (you know what I mean) … che stile!
Grazie mille Scott … when are you back in Melbourne?
June 21, 2010 at 12:51 am
although designers are simplifying their lines, do you think the price tag will entice buyers to pay the "high end price" for simplified goods?

I was actually a bit dissapointed in the Prada show..2010 was much nicer.
June 21, 2010 at 2:00 am
there is a simplicity running around now that we've been missing for years. while i will always enjoy the over-the-top, stretch-your-imagination kind of clothes, i will never tire of enjoying something truly wearable and simply stylish and i'm glad it is back (for women and for men).
June 21, 2010 at 2:03 am
Love the shapes and colors :) wide-legged shorts.. I love them !
June 21, 2010 at 2:13 am
amazing as usual..
June 21, 2010 at 2:24 am
perfection by prada. i just love every single thing. want it all – for myself! :)
June 21, 2010 at 2:42 am
AMEN and AMEN, again, to wearable clothes on the catwalk…don't like those too baggy shorts, though, nor the rainbow colors on the shoulders of the last sweater…they didn't get the contrast with the dark body of the sweater just right, I think. Gorgeous photos, as usual, and today is dawning much lovelier in Milan; thank goodness you'll be able to enjoy this beautiful city this time without the rain too typical of fashion show periods.
June 21, 2010 at 2:54 am
i often think (including right now as i am reading your post) that men's fashion is becoming just as exciting if not more exciting than women's… i see some things and wish i were a man so i could wear them
June 21, 2010 at 3:15 am
It's just so elegant and wearable, wish I was a guy..I would love a pair of those wide shorts! Jalous! ;)
June 21, 2010 at 4:12 am
Love those shoes!
June 21, 2010 at 4:28 am
I really love Prada's colors…
June 21, 2010 at 4:51 am
Prada is great but…
Don't forget what "we" are really interested to see by you is your vision of the outside of the shows.
June 21, 2010 at 4:57 am
The best…as usual!!
June 21, 2010 at 5:08 am
I'm with you Scott…love the everyday stylish wear of this collection. Those shoes are too cool!
Guess that is one of the only advantages of the recession.
June 21, 2010 at 5:35 am
great look, loving the elegance of it. fabulous

Wow, thank you for this insight! I can see quite lot of wearable designs.How to refer to one photo, when there are so many in one post? Maybe a short description (or number) for each photo would help…
I like this one:http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/62010BVblupants_4072Web.jpg

June 21, 2010 at 7:54 am
Lose some of the simplicity of the looks. I like it when people wear the clothing, not the clothing wear the people. But the shorts? Sorry, those proportions just remind me of women's culottes. Not flattering at all on models with great bodies..now imagine them on the usual person wearing them.
June 21, 2010 at 8:07 am
the most amazing piece of this collection are definitely the shoes.

Interesting shorts, I wonder what Magdalena Ribbing (Sweden's expert on clothes etiquette etc. would say about these: she feels shorts should never be worn1. at work2. at a restaurant3. at a grocery store out of consideration for ones fellow citizens.Something along the lines of these are the wide, many-pocketed jeans-skirts that one sometimes sees on (avant garde?)carpenters here in Sweden.

Don't love the wide shorts that look like skirts. But love the boatneck sweater in the last Prada photo.
It is always amazing how fast men are satisfied with simple style.

i love the boatnecks for men!so glad to see them on the runway,hopefully next on the street!

I'm not normally big into menswear, but I love this line. The outfit in the first picture is especially cute.

always been a fan of prada's higher jacket cuts. agreed on how a little understatement compared to past years goes a long way.
June 21, 2010 at 12:16 pm
I so totally agree with you, Scott. Watching the show last night I was absolutely in awe how much those clothes were altogether wearable, simple, modern, easily understandable and yet innovative. In fact I cannot wait until this collection goes in stores: rarely have I felt I could identify so much with the style of a designer without having the impression of going a little over the top. Thanks for posting and pointing out to Miuccia's formidable achievement. :)
June 21, 2010 at 1:01 pm
The shoes! The SHOES!!! The world is going to become immediately obsessed with them. The shorts are an interesting idea, but look a bit too much like a mom skirt in denim. The colors are paired in a really exciting way, but as you say, very wearable. Hooray!

Very simple and gorgeous clothes! Really like them, i love your blog by the way bieing following for a while.Regards from LondonMarga

i hope PRADA makes the wide shorts and cool shoes for the girls to!!!! I bet Marc Jacobs would wear those shorts in a flash!!!
June 21, 2010 at 4:45 pm
loving the shoes!!
June 21, 2010 at 5:32 pm
i love the oversize denim shorts outfit.
June 21, 2010 at 7:31 pm
Clothes that we simply want to wear? Really?? Who does actually want to wear those ridiculously wide bermudas?
June 21, 2010 at 8:29 pm
Booooring… Or is it just me?
I would expect something edgier and more elegant from Prada. If these clothes were on sale at J. Crew, no one would bat an eye.
June 21, 2010 at 9:17 pm
loving the first look…
June 22, 2010 at 7:19 am
I like it. It is simple, but you can tell the clothes are very well-made. I'm not a fan of shorts, on men or women, because somehow it always looks a little cheap. But here it looks very tailored, and the colors kept it from being too tame.
June 22, 2010 at 8:03 am
The shorts remind me of the special uniform that Shintaido masters wear. I always thought they'd make an interesting fashion statement. http://www.shintaido.org/gallery/2010_National/ito1It's a fabulous idea for the runway. I don't know if they'll catch on, but thy just might given the current passion for gigantically long sports shorts.
June 22, 2010 at 1:07 pm
Lots to love. I wish designers would start to think along the same vein for women. I'm always searching for beautiful, well proportioned basics such as these (in these gorgeous stormy palettes) and, boy, what a rare find they are. It's just starting to creep into the industry with "boyfriend pants" "boyfriend sweaters" etc., but I feel there is a serious lag, still.The most inspirational of your posts for day to day style are often the menswear or menswear-inspired looks. I hope there are designers out there listening (and looking!)
June 22, 2010 at 1:24 pm
I like the first look, the rest is bullshit. Maybe I just don't 'get it', but the majority runway fashion consists of stuff that no one would ever wear on a daily basis.
June 22, 2010 at 3:15 pm
I love Prada going to a more comfortable low key look while still remaining classic. The only qualm is I detest the big shorts. They seem to be too over the top and I would not want to see my man wearing them.

June 22, 2010 at 5:46 pm
Scott, I have never been so excited about collections before. Prada and Bottega Veneta made me literally scream for joy!
I just love an elegant neckline. However, most are too feminine or conservative for me. I am a masculine man. Boatnecks are so rare in menswear despite. Oh, I just am touched. BV's high concept sportwear that looks like it could even be used for sports and endure it all. The folding of the neckline to the side seams and you know those zippers work all the way through. YEA!!! All around, yea!
June 22, 2010 at 8:41 pm
June 22, 2010 at 10:19 pm
Very unisex/androgynous. I can easily picture women in this collection. The shorts made me laugh in a good way;with delight. I love it when someone opts to contradict a trend, such as skinny everything. But I do see the point of other comments about Skorts and Culottes. The 1st pic being skinny everything, is my least favorite look because of it. Ho-hum, it's been done. Love the shoes though!
June 23, 2010 at 1:37 am
I have to say most of these selections seem wearable and good choices but what is with these shorts?
They seem buffoonish in proportion and styling… Certainly not my taste.
June 23, 2010 at 5:23 am
Skinny clothes is one thing but why are the men models so thin!? As a woman I don't get it. Why would a grown man want to identify with tiny boys?
June 23, 2010 at 7:33 am
Don't know what Miuccia thought when designing that chunky shoes… big dislike!But the shorts are great – creating a silhouette that seems very new and innovative – just what Prada is all about, always.
June 23, 2010 at 2:18 pm
Am I the only one who is reminded of germany in the 30s and 40s? the haircut, truly awful!
June 23, 2010 at 2:46 pm
am i right to think – only skinny blokes can get away with shorts like these? any thoughts…
June 23, 2010 at 2:50 pm
Love it – first picture has all GREAT clothes. Not to mention the shoes in all of them…
June 23, 2010 at 2:56 pm
I can't quite tell, but is the first model wearing dark navy, charcoal, and dark brown shoes? I think they did that just to prove they could make it work. Also, there is something futuristic about this collection to me, and all the looks fit perfectly in the same era. These clothes are clean and precise and I don't think they would look half as sleek on overly muscular men.
June 23, 2010 at 3:31 pm
I never thought I'd say this, but I'm kinda digging the skorts.
June 23, 2010 at 7:43 pm
Prada with their bold collection. Love it! Great photos.
June 23, 2010 at 11:43 pm
so wrinkles are in this season? Only on the garments though, apparently.
June 24, 2010 at 12:08 am
This is a Men's collection, but even I, as a woman, am drawn to wear such fabulous men's wear! Great collection indeed.
June 24, 2010 at 9:07 am
Love the extra wide shorts–although the denim ones may be a little too bulgey at the front. Love the slimline look in the first photo with the platform shoes. And that striped jumper is divine especially on that lighter coloured model.
June 24, 2010 at 12:56 pm
You have to be slender and scrawny with almost no muscles to wear those clothes. That's for sure! But then they will look fabulous!
June 24, 2010 at 11:53 pm
Skinny on top, very baggy on the bottom. A normally proportioned guy, not to mention a muscular or fat one, would find it difficult to maintain the proportions of the clothes.
Nevertheless, I like the look, especially the first one, which does seem futuristic (as someone else said) to me.
June 25, 2010 at 11:54 am
Prada hardly ever does wrong in my eyes. The orange blazer outfit is my favourite.
June 25, 2010 at 7:54 pm
I really dont like the shoes in these ensembles! Rather off-puting. Online Credit Score
June 29, 2010 at 1:09 pm
anybody knows where I can find those kind of shoes? even a search word or something, because I really like them and don't know what is the name of this style.thanks!
June 30, 2010 at 7:45 am
I LOVE THIS PRADA COLLECTION! COMPLETELY AGREE THAT'S ONE OF THE BEST ONES SO FAR! LOVING THE PICTURES AS ALWAYS :)

I like the baggy legs on the Bermudas. I'll be visiting the Prada stores for these, they'll fit my rugby player's thighs, finally!

Horrible shorts, the kind that can only be worn on a runway…
July 26, 2010 at 4:40 pm
The wide-legged shorts have the effect of a skirt, especially from a profile view. Are we one step closer to skirts for men, then?
